A native of Brighton, England, Andrew served his hands-on apprenticeship as a goldsmith for a London based jewelry company that had stores throughout the country. Andrew, being artistically inclined, felt that his talent would be well applied to a profession that demands such creativity and attention to detail. Thereafter, he would establish his own business in the renowned jewelry district of “The Lanes.”
In 1985, Andrew moved to California where he met his wife Jackie and established Gold Arts where together they help their clients fulfill their jewelry needs. Some come in with a specific idea, others with a special occasion, some with a simple repair that Andrew can often do while they wait. It is always their pleasure to help them, to see them happy, to take part in their celebration. The desire of the client to convey a message through a piece of jewelry is what he finds inspiring and motivating. It is encouraging to meet people that want to create that special connection by crafting such a treasured gift for their loved ones to enjoy.
